Celebrating over 50 years


Thank you to all of our friends and “Partners”

Each and every one of your contributions makes a difference in our ability to fund artistic and educational dance programs in the Lehigh Valley.  Ticket sales cover only part of the expenses necessary to producing the outstanding performances with the nationally renowned guest artists the Ballet Guild is known for.

To learn more about how you can become a “Partner” with the Ballet Guild of the Lehigh Valley and Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, click on the Link – “Be A Partner”. All donations to BGLV, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Foundations and Corporate Support

Our performances are supported by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, through its regional arts funding partnership, Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA). State government funding for the arts depends upon an annual appropriation by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.  PPA is administered in this region by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council.
